Biography

Jean Hébert was born around 1653 to parents Antoine Hébert, cooper (barrel-maker), and Geneviève Lefranc.[1] In some family trees he is often referred to as Jean Baptiste Hébert. There is no evidence that Baptiste was part of his name. [2] On the 1671 census, he was listed as "Jehan".[3] Also listed in this census is an older brother also named Jean, four years older.[3]

Around 1676 he married Marie Anne Doucet, daughter of Pierre Doucet dit Laverdure and Henriette Pelletret.[1] The couple had 14 children.[1]

In the 1678 census they were settled in Port-Royal and had one son, 1 year of age. They owned 20 cattle and 10 arpents of land. [4] They were counted again in Port-Royal in 1686 with 5 children in the household, ages 2 months to 9 years. There was no mention of land or other possessions.[5]

Sometime between 1686 and 1693, Jean and his family had moved to Les Mines, Acadie where they raised their children and tended their farm.[6] By 1701 at Rivière-St-Antoine, Les Mines, they seemed to be doing well with 20 cattle, 30 sheep, 12 hogs, 8 arpents of land and 3 guns.[7]

Jean died sometime after the 1703 census[8] but before the 1707 census in which widow Hebert, who was then about 46 years old, was head of the household with 7 children.[9]

Hebert-4869 and Hébert-2122 appear to represent the same person because: As previously stated, no reason is given for rejecting the previous merge request. The facts as stated are the same. The profiles are duplicates and need to be merged. Thanks!
posted by Jacqueline Girouard
Why is is this a rejected match of Hebert-2122? The father is the same, the birth year is the same. Even the Nosorigines are the same (one for the father and one for the son (this one). The father had only one son named Jean.
posted on Hebert-4869 (merged) by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
Note, this Jean b. about 1653 had a brother named Jean b. abt 1649 according to SW DGFA p 798.
posted by Annette Cormier
Who is this? Etienne and Marie had but one son named Jean and he is already correctly listed as born "about" 1658. Merge? I see he was already an unmerged match to Antoines' son. I don't know what the point of that is. This profile provides no source to go on, so why not just merge it into an existing file that we know is true?
